I hear ya. I don't understand the way some folks spend money either. I spend money, but in other ways. I have a hard time spending money on myself. Every time I go shopping, intending to spend money on myself, I end up buying something for my kids and/or husband instead. Can't help it.

I'm glad you decided to go to your friend's wedding. Have a great time!

Super special occasions for super special friends are worth spending the money on. Have a great time.

Another stingy twenty-something! Yay! I've always been a saver (that's what I prefer to call it). My dad was (and still is) a cheapskate and it rubbed off. I got my first and only pedicure last year with one of my friends and after I found out that it was going to cost $30, the only thing I could think about was how many groceries that could buy. :)

I too am a supporter of the Fair Tax. It sounds too good and therefore, doesn't have a chance in hell of making it into law.

I don't have to be stingy because my husand (he's a CPA) has all the stinginess in our family. I always tell him, it's MY job to spend money. HIS job is to earn it. (BTW I'd worked 25 years before getting to quit my 2nd "day" job and be a stay at home mom.)

Hey there! It was nice to meet you in DC. I hear you on the spending thing. Fortunately for me, I'm a cross between my mom and dad - I cut costs and pinch pennies as a rule, but am quite comfortable breaking the "rule" when it seems right. I break the rule a lot when I'm shopping for care packages ;-)
